This sauce is perfect for so many things! We love it over baked potatoes, or I will mix it with pasta and bake for homemade mac’n’cheese. You can also whip up a batch and mix it with salsa for some yummy salsa con queso with some organic corn chips. Yum!

A quick word on cheese, milk, butter, and other dairy products. The best kinds of dairy are from grass-fed cows. When the cows eat grass, their milk products end up much higher in nutrition, especially vitamins A, E, and vitamin K2. I will usually try for grass-fed over organic, although organic in dairy products is really a great thing to look for, too. For cheese, we like the Kerrygold brand. We usually buy the big chunk they sell at Costco, but I think this is the same one (or at least close), to give you an idea what to look for. Kerrygold is also a great brand to look for when looking for butter.

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium low heat. Whisk in flour and allow to cook for a few minutes, until the mixture starts to change color.

    1. Hi Roberta! Right now it’s all through Facebook, but by the end of this month it will all be run through this site. I’ll hang on to your email address and let you know as soon as that’s available!

    1. Thank you! You can use any whole grain pasta, just be sure to check ingredient lists for weird ingredients. Out of all the whole grain pastas, I like brown rice pasta the best.
